Traditional funeral services are established by one’s cultural or religious customs. These services include a time for families and friends to gather for a visitation or viewing. These services include a funeral at the funeral home or at a church, with the casketed remains present. A procession to a cemetery, or place of final disposition, follows the funeral service. Traditional funeral services are usually public but can be private.
Graveside services are held at the site of burial. These services consist of scripture readings, a eulogy, poetry, and music, and may be accompanied by a visitation or viewing the evening before. Weather and the health of those individuals attending is an important consideration when choosing a graveside service.
Memorial services are conducted when the deceased is not present. These services may take place anywhere the family desires. This is an opportunity to remember your loved one through fellowship with friends and family.
Many families are now considering cremation. We have our own crematory; as part of our commitment to the families we serve, we feel that it is important for us to have complete control over the entire cremation process and to not rely on a third-party provider. There are many options available to you through our funeral home. You have unlimited choices for memorialization when making cremation arrangements. There is no standard cremation arrangement. Many people select a traditional visitation and funeral service followed by cremation. Others may select a cremation followed by a memorial service. Our experienced funeral directors will assist you in developing a customized cremation service that is right for you and your family.
Primary option for cremation: Cremation does not alter the purpose of a visitation and/or a funeral service. These rites benefit the living, to help families find support during their bereavement, and to honor the final wishes of the deceased.
Ellis Mortuary also offers services for the veterans. More details about these specific services will be posted here soon. Check back for updates.
